TANK POWER! World of Tanks will tank-rush the MMO scene

Newcomers to Massively Multiplayer games, especially fantasy-themed titles, are usually quite disappointed when they ask for a "Tank" and receive some kind of burly man or orc in knight's armor who says his role is to "pull a...

Persona 3 Portable getting US release July 6th, 2010
by Josh Tolentino

Dale told me that I could only write this post if I began with the following message:

"Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby! Ooooooh, yeah. Baby, baby!"

And there you go. Persona 3 Portable, the updated, portable-ized adaptation of Persona 3 for the PSP, has finally been announced by Atlus USA, dated for release on July 6th, 2010.

If I or fellow Persona and MegaTen fans have somehow been unable to bombard you with details regarding the game, just know this: you're getting way more than a straight port. Persona 3 Portable comes with an all-new storyline featuring a playable female protagonist, more Social Links, part-time jobs, combat features added from Persona 4, and a fully optimized, portable-friendly interface.

Hit the official website for more details, the gallery for screenshots and box art, or check below for the animated intro. I guess I really have to up and finish Persona PSP if I'm going to dig into this one in time.

No More Heroes 2 vids: Fat Kid Panty Kitty Party Edition

MegaStryke and I recently made a bet that on No More Heroes 2's potential sales. I think that if the game gets a 9 or better from Game Informer and other major gaming news outlets, then it could sell up to a million copies b...

SPOILERS: Entire game of Sin and Punishment 2 on Youtube

2D shmups are back with a vengeance these days, while 3D shmup releases are at an all time low. For my money, the last truly great game in the genre was Panzer Dragoon Orta on the original Xbox. That's only if you don't count...

Tingle continues to tease with three creepy videos

Sorry guys, this post isn't about Teaching Mrs Tingle, though that has its share of creepy teases as well. No, this news story is about Tingle of The Legend of Zelda series and Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland infamy. S...

E3 09: Final Fantasy XIV announced (with online features)! photo
E3 09: Final Fantasy XIV announced (with online features)!
by Colette Bennett

Oh SH*T. We did not see this one coming (at least, not so soon). In the Sony press conference announcements, they dropped an incredible new piece of news: Final Fantasy XIV is coming exclusively to PS3, we got to see footage, and it will have some sort of online connectivity. The trailer also showed off flying dragons. FLYING DRAGONS, PEOPLE!

We don't know much more than that yet, but I'll bet we'll be getting more details very soon. We'll be bringing you the full video shown shortly, but int he meantime, please enjoy the picture of an incredibly happy dog that I have provided above and feel free to imagine me making the same face (as I am doing right now).

Oh happy day! XSEED brings Ju-On:The Grudge to the US

Some days, the seemingly eternally cynical attitude of some gamers really gets me down, but today is not to be one of those days. I don't care what people have to say about this game, because I am so excited to hear it's gett...

Oh my God it's time: Galactrix launch day trailer

Porn stars talk videogames: Also cocks photo
Porn stars talk videogames: Also cocks
by Jonathan Holmes

So as we all know, the internet is for porn. Some would also say that videogames are for porn, too. But what do porn stars think of videogames?

The intrepid, ever professional editors of GameDaily made it their goal to find out via a series of mini-interviews, and the results may astound you. From the sounds of it, the PSP may have replaced Kid Rock as the new ultimate accessory to a porn star's wild night out, and Drake from Uncharted: Drake's Fortune may be the new hot stud all the porn stars want to "get jiggy with."

Being a licensed clinical social worker in real life, I'm tempted to start analyzing these often beautiful girls and figure out why they have chosen to make a life out of debasing the most intimate act two human beings can share together, why some of them think Mario is hotter than Sonic based on Sonic's sneakers looking too old, and why others want a three-way with Ratchet and Clank. But starting down that path would be just like unraveling a big cable-knit sweater, that someone keeps knitting, and knitting, and knitting ... and knitting.
